Scenes filled with humor (one of the few times I have laughed from a "Who farted ?" joke), scenes of staggering beauty, sadness and terrible cruelty, and finally there is the explosive ending. This is everything I hope to experience in a movie and more. What is clear to me is Uchida desperately needs more exposure. No more Kurosawa for my friends, now I will demand to show them Shimizu and Uchida instead !
